Indonesian Political Parties: From Party Machinery to Political Volunteerism

Why is it that the attention of so many people to political parties and their involvement in those parties is always related to a sum of money that they receive as a compensation?

Why does transactionalism become so strong in Indonesian politics as to be able to push away the political volunteerism that was still visible in Indonesian politics in the 1950s and 1960s?

Can we say that the tendency not to choose in a general election is a real development, and that this development poses a threat for political parties and the promotion of democracy?

Can independent or non-party candidates become an alternative to the role of political parties in representative democracy?

Should we treat welfare as a goal of democracy, and should we take another system that is more effective, albeit more authoritarian, to replace democracy if it is unable to create welfare?

These are some crucial questions which this booklet, produced by the Indonesian Community for Democracy, aims to answer.
